What is Family Constellations?

Founded by German psychotherapist and philosopher Bert Hellinger, Family Constellations is a methodology used to identify and resolve difficult life issues in our family, work, business, health or creativity. 

The constellation approach looks at these issues through a wide lens which can include past generations, trans-generational traumas, and epigenetic inheritance – as often it is here that the root of the problem belongs.

About Roisin

Welcome to my website, I facilitate Family Constellations in Dublin and around Ireland and the UK.  Working with groups and individuals and using Bert Hellinger’s model.

I started my training in the UK with Barbara Morgan in 2013/2014, going on to train again in 2015/2016 asBarbara’s apprentice. Since then I have done many other trainings with  facilitators around the world. Stephan Hausner, Anngwyn St. Just, Albrecht Mahr, Francesca Mason Boring, Sneh Victoria Schnabel, Jan Jacob Stam and many more. I am presently working alongside Barbara Morgan in the 2017/2018 UK training, as her assistant trainer.

I am a founder member of the fun and inspiringConstellations Camp Ireland, a 5 day retreat camp in June with constellations and support events. I also facilitate at Earthsong camp in Tipperary and Unicorn camp in the UK every summer.

In my own life I have seen huge changes in the relationships I have with my family, children and their father as a direct result of doing constellations. Having four teenagers and seeing my own patterns show up in them was my own reason for seeking out the training.  As I did more constellations, I observed my family system relax and my desire grew to offer and share this magical work.  

How can attending a workshop help me?

Family constellations is soul work. In a group setting we create a safe and confidential space which then becomes a healing field. This allows us to look at the harmful beliefs and patterns that we have dragged along with us throughout our lives and sometimes passed on to our children. Working together, using members of the group as representatives, we create a “living map” of the problem, dynamic or situation. Through this lens, simple but hidden truths can be revealed and understood, giving new insight and opportunities for change and movement.

Whilst we each have our own personal history we are also, inevitably, deeply connected with our wider familial, social and cultural history which exerts a strong, and often unacknowledged, influence over us. Secrets, betrayals, war, and many other traumas are part of our history here in Ireland and Family Constellations gives us the opportunity to re examine our fixed ideas and judgements.

Upcoming Workshops

Systemic constellation workshops provide a respectful and confidential space in which to look at a wide range of personal issues. The process is supportive, and often highly illuminating and moving. At a workshop we are able to take rare and precious time to drop down into a different connection with ourselves, with others, and with the wider spheres of our relational life. Both bringing an issue and participating as a representative in other constellations offers insight and healing for all in the group.
